Mormon Jazz owner to skip Sunday game

May 9, 2008


— Utah Jazz owner Larry Miller says he won't attend Game 4 of the Western Conference semifinals because it's being played on a Sunday.

Miller, a member of the Mormon church, says he won't attend because of religious reasons. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints encourages members to avoid non-religious activities on Sundays.

Miller told The Salt Lake Tribune he probably wouldn't watch the game on TV or listen on radio, but his wife might watch the game and give him updates while he takes a long drive.

The Lakers-Jazz game will be Utah's first Sunday home game since the 2001 playoffs.
